This is the sequel to "Rabbit Hill", with the same assortment of motley characters from the previous book. Winter arrives on Rabbit Hill, and the animals attempt to survive not only a "tough winter", but a series of events that threaten their health and safety.

This is one of those stories that doesn't need to be cataloged as "juvenile only". It was a pleasant and smile-inducing read for me. ( )

Not nearly as engaging as Rabbit Hill.

The hard winter that Analdas, the old Rabbit, prophesies comes to pass in more ways than one for the dwellers of Rabbit Hill when the "Folk" go away and leave a neglectful Caretaker with a mean Dog in charge.
